in relation to my knife suggestion thread, i've made a knife model for the game with only 54 polygons. admittedly it's skin is pretty basic, but it works. i'm waiting to see if kit89 fixes the md3 export script before i attempt to put it into the game.


does the knife look ok? give me a shout if the shape needs tweaking or if it needs more/less detail.

the zip file contains the model, the skin and the gimp file used to make the skin. if anyone fancies doing a better skin that would be great, it's not really my strong point.

I have to say, that looks rather decent for what it is. Even with the basic skin on it. You could probably smooth it out a bit on the blade curve, but I'm not sure how well it would look after that.

All that thing needs is a kickass looking skin. A high-res skin to be certain.

thanks for the feedback AllegedlyDead. i'll put a bit more detail in the blade curve.

the current skin is 2048x2048, which is way too big for the game, but i figure it's better to have too much detail and scale it down than not have enough.

Holy shit, that's too large in my opinion. Hell, 512x512 should cut it. Perhaps for the whole knife as you might end up mirroring one side.

I wonder if I should go find a high-res+poly counter-strike knife model on the H.I.T. forums and give you an example... Haha, I'm just kidding.

ok, here's a new knife. i've followed AllegedlyDead's suggestion and put some more detail in the curve of the blade. i've also given a slight concave curve on the back of the blade. it's now up to 80 polygons.

the skin is now 1024x1024, it's mirrored on both side of the knife and it's still just basic blobs of colour.
